Introduction

There are an increasing number of disputes arising in relation to boundaries. Land Registry plans do not define boundaries and the title deed may have been lost, resulting in disputes where the costs involved are disproportionate to the values of the strips of land involved. The General Boundary Rule is misunderstood by clients and their advisers and Land Registry have stated that many ‘adverse possession’ applications are misconceived.

Solicitors are often blamed by clients and the courts for causing these problems. This course looks at the main types of boundary and neighbour disputes. Also non-conveyancers, including surveyors, will be surprised at the deliberate inaccuracy of the Land Registration and conveyancing system when it comes to identifying boundaries and rights correctly. The physical characteristics and history of the land are often of crucial significance, so it is important to be able to recognise (or discount) any clues that they may give you.
